SREENING AS PART OF OUR MARC BOLAN AND T.REX WEEK
NEW FILM FROM ITS UK RELEASE DATE !
Bang a gong and get it on in this dramedy about a group of Liverpool friends who tumbled head-first into the 1970s music scene, only for a tragic accident to reverberate through the rest of their lives. Featuring the music of glam rock pioneers T-Rex and starring Timothy Spall, Leanne Best and Matthew Horne.
This story takes us on a tumultuous journey from the height of T. Rex mania in 1970s Liverpool to the present-day poignancy of what would have been Marc Bolan’s 75th birthday. It captures the heady exhilaration of glam rock mania through the experiences of a group of over-excited kids from a local children’s home before a devastating road accident changes their lives forever. Years later, and still clinging to the adoration of her childhood idol, survivor Penny takes best friend and fellow Marc Bolan fan to visit his shrine in London but a chance encounter there catapults her back to the horror she had tried so hard to forget. Light-hearted comedy and supernatural chills abound in this inspirational story that explores the enduring legacy of childhood trauma and the life-affirming power of music.
